What a neat organizer. The size of the tuna cans makes them perfect for small trinkets like crafting beads and pins or an assortment of tea bags. I love how much information there was in the making of the swing out storage. The author made so many mistakes along the way which gave us tips on how to make the project easier.

This is a great up-cycle idea! To clean my tuna cans I use vinegar and baking soda. First I rinse out the cans, sprinkle with baking soda then poor in some vinegar. Let it set until the bubbles stop. Rub with a soft cloth and rinse again. Let dry. Works great. Back to the Tuna Can Swing Out Storage Idea. This will be a nice to have sitting on my craft table, filled with all the small tools I need to keep in one place. Love this craft idea. Thank you so much for sharing this thrifty idea.

I think this is a really cute idea and I love been able to use throw away household items to make function things with so I love this idea but I have washed tuna cans in the past and I find it really difficult to get the smell out of them, does anyone have any tips for this?
